Yeah, in a perfect world with no bad guys!
I think that lawful non-felons, trained in gun safety, should be allowed to have and carry weapons for protection. The ONLY reason Hitler controlled/killed the Jews and more before the start of WW2 was in DISARMING them first. All bad/despotic governments disarm the citizens first.
Thus, the thugs have the guns, the victims none. Your head is in the clouds.
Let me know how to get rid of the crimminals guns. PLEASE!
Or maybe knife fights and beheadings? Or spears....I will protect myself from thugs by ANY means necessary.Period, end of story.

Again, the problem is the disease that is violence and it lives in a brain not a bullet. This nutjob would have figure out a way to kill as monay folks as he wanted with his engineering background and resources. Of course people should be trained and educated on gun safety before being allowed to carry weapons. And fully automatic requires a class 3 license, which normally only gunsmiths, body guards and police/military can obtain easily. The people that register and abide by the laws rarely use guns in crimes. It's the stolen guns and irresponsible parents who have guns in their house and hide them from their children instead of explaining that it's not a toy and if they touch it, fingers will get bent back abnormally. Then the kid finds it and surprize, someone gets shot or takes it to school. I have had someone break into my house while I was there twice, once long ago in NJ and all I had was a baseball bat and once not too long in FL with a 357. I can tell you that my family was happy that I had that 357 and I was not too thrilled to only have a baseball bat the first time. My exwife who hated guns and wanted them locked away changed her outlook completely and insisted I carry it whenever we went anywhere from that point on. I never killed anyone and those "statistics" about more chance of dying with a gun in the house is strictly IQ driven I am sure. The same people who tap into the neighbors natural gas line and run generators in the garage and drive off bridges and all other senseless but preventable activity perpetrated by the less than brilliant masses should not impede my right to protect my family. The shooting is sad and it was the cops and or the school administrations fault that the place was not shut done. This president of the school's days are numbered. We need to address the disease not the symptoms or the tools involved. It is sad and outrageous... I am sure other missed red flags along the way will be revealed and someone should be held accountable for this horrible act but it shouldn't be me or my family. Let's hope somthing comes out of this like better emergency planning and bolt cutters in squad cars to cut chained doors, etc.

How about IQ tests for people who want to have/raise children? If there were tests to become parents there probably would be less violence in general, gun or otherwise. Why? Because AFAIC MOST people SHOULDN"T be parents---without the proper training first.

Oh I forgot to mention that we should then take the ones who fail the "parent test" & put'em in camps along with the homosexuals, gypsys, retards, and all the "brown" people of the world (anyone that's NOT white).
